Despite their hard-wearing nature, vacuum sewer systems still require cleaning on occasion. If these systems aren’t kept clean, they could cease to operate as they need to. Thanks to vacuum sewer cleaning in Lancashire, we can ensure that all vacuum sewer systems are able to operate as effectively as possible.
Vacuum sewers, otherwise known as pneumatic sewers, are an effective way of transporting waste to a sewage treatment plant. Many homes and businesses rely on public vacuum sewers to carry their waste away. Although these systems are designed to carry waste away quickly, it is still possible for waste to get caught in them. Even if it is only a small amount of waste, this can then capture other forms of waste.
Over time, even pneumatic sewer systems can become blocked. In public systems, this can be a serious problem and cause damage to the surrounding area. In addition to the issues a vacuum blockage can cause to the local area, it can also cause issues in attached properties. This can include businesses and domestic properties.

Where are Vacuum Sewers Most Commonly Used?

All of these spaces need to be able to deal with a high volume of waste and cannot afford for it to remain in place. Vacuum sewers are increasingly being used to replace old septic tanks and gravity solutions for waste.
How Do Vacuum Sewer Systems Work?
Vacuum sewer systems use differential air pressure and gravity in order to quickly transport waste and sewage. The waste is moved through pipes towards one, or more, collection pits which then connect to a central collection tank. This tank is similar in design to a septic tank, in that it collects waste from several drainage points. In most cases, this collection tank is then links to a discharge point.
At the discharge point, the waste can be easily removed from the system by a professional team. They will use a connected vacuum system to extract waste from within the system and transport it away from your property.
